-calledtiescal cliff negotiations today, and it took him less than a minute. congressman steve israel joins me next. >> eliot: president obama's new conference on guns today was emotionally powerful and compelling. the passion of supplied night combined with the call of action on an issue everyone has been talking about since the horrific shootings on friday. what was the topic nearly from every question from the press corp, that's right the fiscal cliff. his take on the recent developments in the non-negotiation between the white house and speaker boehner. >> obama: the country deserves folks who are willing to compromise on behalf of the greater good, and not tangle themselves up in a whole bunch of ideological positions that don't make sense. the speaker is now proposing what he called plan-b. he said this would raise taxes only on folks making $1 million or more. let's think about the logic for a second. they're thinking about voting for raising taxes on folks who makeover $1 million, which they say they don't want to do, but they'll reject spending cuts which they say they do want to do. that
from steve cook, head of the michigan education association was a guest on our program. the union leadership was working, meeting with governor schneider and he said no the last thing i want is -- i don't want to split this state the way they did in wisconsin and ohio. no no, no. i don't want anything to do with that. i want to work together with the unions. i don't want anything to do with this rumors that they might try to pass some so-called right-to-work legislation in michigan. they met for like about ten days and then on friday, the republican-controlled legislature forced through -- get this now -- with no public hearings no debate on the floor, no members of the public allowed to testify for it or against it, no members of the public even allowed in the state capitol building when they passed this bill it would make michigan the 24th state to have the so-called right-to-work legislation on the books. they forced it through and then rick sha nidor in a total turnaround, a total flip-flop a total doubl
williams, remember, and pointed this out yesterday steve jobs told president obama, those manufacturing jobs are never going to be here in the united states. tim cook says, well, guess what? i am taking al company in a different direction. >> in many ways one of the things he did for me that removed a gigantic burden is that he told me on a couple of pages before he passed away to never question what he would have done. never asked a question what steve do, to just do what's right. >> so there was no wwsd. just do the right thing. now, here is where i disagree with tim cook a little bit. he said, here's why we haven't done this earlier. >> honestly, it's not too much about price. it's about the skills, et cetera. over time, there are skills that are associated with manufacturing that have left the u.s. not necessarily people but the education for producing. >> now, you see, i disagree with that. the skills are here americans can make these products. they can make them as good and better earn anybody in the entire world. we have a great skilled workforce

[ applause ] >> stephanie: he says personal assassination. it is clear to me that obama did not win this election because of his record but he is clearly effective of smearing everyone. please allow both points of view. are you kidding? right-wingers go to the front of the line. >> absolutely. >> stephanie
, classic voices, steve king from iowa yesterday saying the last thing we want to do is do anything at all to infringe on our second amendment rights. >> here's the thing about the steve kings of the world. they'll never support this. this is one of the frustrating things i think for americans and particularly democrats watching the gun control debate or lack thereof that's been happening. the people who weren't going to support the president on this particular issue are never going to support the president. they're never going to do it. if you believe it should be done, you have to cut your loss. on a side note, when i was watching the question and answer session with the president which one was remarkable because he hasn't been doing a lot of q&a in the pressroom with the media. >> bill: we did not expect him to take questions. we were surprised. >> if i could have asked the president one question and i don't know that i'll ever get a chance to be in the room and ask him a question. it would have been this. i watched hi

in california. they have been ruthless, despite campaign promises. steve, thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> my pleasure, thank you for having me. >> cenk: keep fighting the fight, brother. >> states rights, right? obama, you love to agree with the republicans, why don't you agree on this. let's bring in eliot spitzer. >> cenk, susan rice saying i don't want the job, i don't quite believe her. i believe she was pressured by the white house. the white house caved once again. hsbc, little tiny slap on the risk go give money to drug lords. that's what the banks are being told over and over. i can't believe it. randy winegarten about the future of labor. we're going to have a fun time talking about tax rates. >> cenk: we just did a story on the hsbc. if you're a banker, you can't kill someone we think. >> here's what you do if you're hsbc. you go down to the drug companies and say we're open for business. we make a lot of money doing this and if we get caught, we only give back a little bit to the government and maybe a little bit of our bonuses but maybe not. but if they catch
and its nominating committee. he's on that, too. but perhaps the person who really had steve feinberg's ear the president of cerberus' ear following the sandy hook tragedy was not his big name partners. but maybe it was his father. martin feinberg, who actually lives in newtown connecticut. the elder mr. feinberg today called the events devastating. joining me now is daniel gross the global business editor for "newsweek" and the "daily beast." he has been covering the cerberus story. he's coming to us from new york. welcome back inside "the war room." >> good to be here. >> jennifer: so how significant is it that the california teacher's pension is threatening to divest from this fund and what does this portend for other potential pension funds? >> i think it actually is pretty significant. i wouldn't say it is a dirty little secret. it is very little known if this whole private equity industry, we're talking about the blackstone group and bain capital and kkr and cerberus, all of these billionaires who are
in american history. >> eliot: joining me now is congressman steve israel, chairman of the campaign committee, congressman welcome. >> thanks, governor. >> eliot: is it possible that you see the two sides getting into more rigid positions that each thinks it has given as much as it can without sacrificing it's base? is speaker boehner worried that he can't carry it any more and is the president getting heat for concessions he has made? >> i think the president has gone as far as he can go. he has compromised and compromised again to meet the americans halfway. the problem is instead of the republicans coming towards the president, they move further away. when the president had plan ha, the republicans had plan-b. now it's plan b-minus because they have new gyrations in the rules committee. the bottom line, the president has gone about as far as he can go. maybe further he went from the $250,000 trigger on taxes then $400,000. maybe he could go to $500,000. but fundamentally john boehner has to make a decision, what is more important the survival of the middle class and working families for th

. they have all of their products now being built in china and tim cooke, who replaced steve jobs and very rarely gave interviews, gave an interview to nbc he announced next year we'll do one of our existing mac lines in the united states. they're going to start creating some jobs here in america. >> bill: you know, that's a bfd. >> great news. >> seriously. >> bill: it is great news. we knew shortly before he died, steve jobs was at a very small dinner of high tech leaders with president obama in silicon valley and steve jobs says those jobs are never coming back, mr. president. stop talking about it. they ain't coming back. >> he was wrong apparently. >> bill: well, that was his policy and now somebody else is in charge. >> this is going to be building apple computers. they're still going to be building iphones and eye pats in china which makes up most of their business but this is a very good first step to bring jobs to america from apple. good for them. >> bill: i wonder where. >> they haven't announced where.

that clear. right. steve ducey fox and friends. >> every day the nation gets one step closer to the so-called fiscal cliff. right now, there are only 25 shopping days left for congress and the president to negotiate a deal. he doesn't want to make a deal. less less monday at the hall, more -- he's less monty hall, more monti burns to extract pain on the republicans. >> stephanie: so the issue that he ran and won on -- >> well, i think what's so frustrating for republicans is the last time we had some of these dopey countdown to the clock of armageddon was with the debt deal. and republicans were in a much stronger position for better or for worse just because they were willing to you know, blow up the whole debt deal, et cetera. so i think you know, they wish it was like that. they wished -- when that unfolded, obama was taking hit after hit. he did not have the leverage. he obviously hadn't just won an election. his approval ratings were going in the tank. so they're upset that this isn't a rerun. they're upset
